It’s the one day of the year where the expectation is high, the anticipation of grand gestures taking place is palpable.

Therefore you must rise to the occasion – a ring in a champagne glass might work any other day of the year, however on Valentine’s day, we hate to say it, but it just isn’t going to cut it! But don’t panic guys and gals, we’ve got you covered! With a selection of unique, fun and romantic ways to pop the big question you’ll be sure to impress.

1.Hidden Photographer

Take your partner on a beautiful walk, perhaps somewhere that is significant or special to the both of you. Have your photographer poised and ready to immortalize that moment in time with beautiful images.

Every second from your engagement shoot to your wedding day is catalogued. You can’t re-create that moment, the nervous but exhilarated look of the proposer and the breathtaking reaction of the proposee. With a continually rising trend for documenting all our big life moments with the rest of the world, it makes sense to be able to capture one of the happiest and most sincere moments you’ll share together.

2. Being Creative With Food

There are several ways you can do it. If you love a grand gesture in front of an audience, all eyes on you, then how about have the waiter at your chosen restaurant present your lover with a platter of all their favourite foods. All beautifully placed, and underneath a little dish, you can unveil the ring. Cue champagne, a round of applause and your partner thinking you’re the most thoughtful person in the world.

However not everyone loves being the centre of attention, so if you’d like something a little more private how about having your message carved into a large piece of fruit, hollowed out with chilled champagne inside.

Last year we created exactly this for a couple who loved Autumn. We came up with a bespoke design to go on to a pumpkin and alongside it, we had a smaller pumpkin with a ring box inside.

3. Making a Day Of It

A relationship is built of so many defining moments and memories. Therefore there’s becoming an increasing tendency to create a whole day out of the proposal. No longer is it just deciding to get down on one knee, but curating a day full of your significant other’s favourite things to show how much you know and love them.

Valentine’s day is the perfect day to do this as they may not realise what you’re planning. Then at the end of the day, with all that built up anticipation, that is when you pop the question.

4. Getting Your Families Involved

Whether they appear out of nowhere with the letters written on their T-shirts, or they help lead your significant other to a destination where you are ready and waiting to propose. There are so many ways to include your family and what better way of celebrating the day of love with all the ones you love.

5. With Breakfast In Bed

Let’s face it, not everyone wants their moment shared in front of others. Therefore what better way to propose than in the comfort of your bed, cuddled up together. Make them a cup of tea and at the bottom have your proposal printed. You’ll catch them off guard as they won’t be expecting it on Valentine’s day morning. Then spend the rest of the day celebrating!
